look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a tulip glass from a 16.9 oz bottle.

The brew pours a nice straw pale golden color with some mil orange hues on the edges. It is very slightly hazy. There is a nice half inch white head that is dense to medium dense and lively yet recedes quickly.

Aroma is exquisite. Notes of fruity tartness together with some yeast acidic tartness as well. Note of woody barrel notes with some good mild fruit juice sweetness. Notes of unripened peaches and apricots. Nice fruity notes mixed in with funk and some mild earthy undertones.

Wow! This is delicious starts off dry and then some great full bodied rich sweet fruit juice notes creep up. Notes of apricot sweetness and tartness with some mild peach notes as well. There is a nice grainy earthy undertone in the flavor as well that mixes in nicely with the fruit sweet/tart notes. Very effervescent like champagne. Vinous character and notes are perceived in the middle and back end of the brew. The mouthfeel is spicy and with prickly dry carbonation. Light and yummy.

So far one of my favorite Prairie beers. Great notes of fruit, nice yeasty esters some wood and nice earthy grain go together to form a very drinkable, smooth yet flavorful brew.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

500ml bottle poured into a tulip.

A - Nearly glowing yellow. Very fine super-white head settling into a thin film. Very bubbly.

S - Definitely funk and citrus. Quite dry, but pleasing.

T - Quite different than the nose for me. I got the apricots and malt up front, finishing with a dry pepper/herb/floral finish. Better after warming.

M - Light body, intense carbonation, and dry.

O - I think it's a great pour. If you enjoy the Prairie line-up, you won't be disappointed.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.

Deep and shimering shiny bright lemon yellow body, just glowing. The head is a shocking bright white, with light retention and a thick fluffy puck on top. Lots of rising carbonation. Very pretty looking saison.

Great nose. Good dry funk, wonderful juicy fruit notes hinting of peaches and lemons. Crisp but only semi-arid sensing on the bouquet. Fantastic balance.

Great palate to match with a solid feel. Light juiced body with sharp brett but that balances nicely. Slight malty finish with great fruit qualities. Mellow peaches and fruit finish with a quenching lemon spritzy quality.

Another fun saison from these guys. Very impressed with this breweries offerings.

Poured from a bottle into a D'Achouffe tulip. The cap comes off with an angry hiss and the beer quickly bubbled up to the lip (good thing I had the glass ready). I snuck a quick whiff out of the bottle and wow! Does it smell tart! The pour is deep gold, crystal clear, and as effervescent as a glass of alka selzer. The bubbles just stream to the top in a nonstop parade. The head is fine, creamy, and snow-white and has some decent retention for such an acidic beer. The nose has lots of apple skin, white wine, lemon, and some white pepper.

The beer has a light body and a stony-dry flavor. It doesn't follow the nose at all. I get some slightly sweet, grainy malt notes up front, then it dries out and becomes very herbal, peppery, and flowery. Near the back of the palate, the flavor takes on a lemon-like, citrusy tartness that dries out the palate. All the while, a high level of carbonation intensifies the flavors, adding to the appetizing nature and thirst-quenching characteristics. Very crisp and refreshing.

Overall, this is an outstanding, yet very dry, farmhouse ale. While I don't think it's in the same league as the best saisons from this brewer, it's still very enjoyable. It says on the bottle "from Oklahoma with love." I wish I could show the folks in Krebs just how much I love their beers. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to keep buying them. That's the best I can do.

500mL into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden color w/ a fluffy white head that settles to a thin film sustained by lively carb.

Aroma is delicate, floral, spicy, w/ a touch of citrus.

Taste is likewise light, floral, bready w/ some orange, lemon and spice.

Mouthfeel is soft and creamy, refreshing.

Overall a delicious, drinkable saison. Very nice.

Poured from the bottle a lightly hazed lemon yellow color with one finger of fizzy bright white head. Light lacing left behind.

Tart aroma of apricots, pineapple, green apple, lemon and yeast notes.

The taste matched the aroma. Lemon, pineapple, tart green apple and bright yeast notes with this one. Finished clean.

Medium bodied and dry with a sharp carbonation.

This was a good one. Tart and wild with a medley of fruit flavors.
